Re: Best Tires in the Wet

I'd love to read a bit more about truck tyre technology, and modern trucks even more so. I still have the image of a two stroke Detroit Diesel with a twin stick transmission as driving a truck :D

Re: Flat Battery

I've found the same, with the exception of my ride on mower, it's had 4 batteries in 10 years. Granted they are the size of a car radio and only $100.

Re: Patrick's W220 S430

I grabbed this today from Repco for $199, down from $319.

Re: Patrick's W220 S430

One thing I've not been able to sort with mine is the time and date setting on the comand and syncing it with the dash clock.

Re: Patrick's W220 S430

Re: Volkswagen Van Hoarder...

I just noticed my typo, the bus was bought in 1978, not 87.

Somewhere I have an album with the old photos

My folks bought a new 8 seater Kombi Microbus, as they were named, in 1987, green with a white glasshouse. That thing took us everywhere.
It was purchased as a delivery van for the business but...
